Travel +Leisure magazine has announced the worlds most unfriendliest cities based on survey where readers were asked to a variety of questions against 266 cities.  It is unclear how many readers participated nor how the 266 cities were chosen in the first place.

Topping the list this year was Moscow, Russia’s capital, with noted comments suggesting ‘aloofness’ of Muscovites was a major contributor to the low score, along with bad traffic.

At number 3 was another architecturally beautiful city, St Petersberg.
